Handmade in the USA | 8 Beautiful Shops

Today we're celebrating our neighbors (it is the Fourth after all) and featuring a few beautiful handmade things from the USA. From beautiful leathergoods to fun beach toys, here's a few quality makers based out of the U.S.

1. Wenning & Co.

Starting with these stunning leathergoods from Wenning and Co. because first off, I love the color and secondly, the minimalist look of them. Aren't they gorgeous? Each of Wenning & Co.'s products is crafted by hand using natural vegetable tanned leather and stitched with wax nylon thread. They are based in Roanoke, IN, United States

2. fruitsuper design

fruitsuper design is a Seattle-based studio that is one-part design consultancy, one-part product development, and three parts "serious-fun." We love their summer-themed products featuring a roll-up double-sided (and water resistent) picnic blanket, super fun silicone (stretch to fit) rings and a fresh take on a Scandinavian outdoor lawn game, King's Game.

3. Hettle

Inspired by summer's muted beach colors and sunsets, Hettle's hand dyed linen cushions, and gauzy scarves are interpreted through the colors created with fiber reactive dyes, water based paints and screens. Hettle is loacted in New Haven, CT.

4. Fail Jewelry

Each piece of Fail Jewelry's collection is delicately handcrafted in sterling silver and 14K gold-fill in Christine Fail's Austin, Texas studio. Christine employs classic metalsmithing techniques such as hand forging to form and shape delicate wire. Forging gives wire strength, resiliency, and a soft organic texture that allows the hand of the artist to be present in each piece. Fail jewelry is intentionally lightweight, fluid, and wearable.
